Title

Images of French Language and Culture Outside of France : A Survey of a Franco-American Population in New England
Images de la langue et de la culture françaises hors de France : enquête aupreĢ€s d'une population franco-américaine de Nouvelle-Angleterre

Description

From the author: "In the first part of the dissertation, we analyze the institutions which traditionally favored bilingualism: the family, the parochial school, the Catholic parish, the social environment, the media and other organisms such as mutual benefit societies and social clubs. The second part deals with images of French language and culture. These chapters treat of the non-linguistic make-up of Franco-American culture, the way Franco-Americans perceive their ethnic tongue and their attitudes towards it, and the written and oral French mastery of our population. In the final part of the analysis, we examine how Franco-American ethnic identity is defined by the individuals questioned and their views on the future of French language and culture in New England."
